Fairmont Monte Carlo
The Fairmont Monte Carlo is a unique four-star luxury convention resort located in the heart of the Principality of Monaco in between the Mediterranean Sea and the legendary Casino of Monte Carlo. The hotel is one of the largest in Europe with its 602 rooms and suites, two restaurants, one bar, 18 meeting rooms, a Willow Stream Fitness Center and a Willow Stream Spa. The hotel is an island unto itself situated in the most exclusive part of the world.
Monaco: a synonym for luxury. A place where the international elite gather, a harbor for the most beautiful yachts, a prestigious location for the most prestigious events, the Principality is known to everyone.
Monaco is nestled between Italy and France on the Côte d'Azur. The Riviera offers over 300 days of sunshine throughout the year. Although the fabulous climate is a primary attraction, people are also drawn to the region's warm engaging colors, the variety of its surroundings and the friendliness of the people. From the deep blue of the Mediterranean to the dazzling white canyons of the inland countryside, this region never stops revealing surprises.
A spectacular waterfront location is the setting for the Fairmont Monte Carlo. Leave the world behind and treat yourself to world-class shopping, International cuisine or simply relaxing by the pool. We offer the perfect retreat for both work and play.
In the early 70's, the construction of the hotel started on the ground of Monaco's first train station. Design and construction of the hotel was challenging. The goal was to incorporate an impressive complex of 60,000 square meters into a Principality of 400 hectares. Building out into the Mediterranean coast rather than build up was determined to be the best solution for this project. It gave birth to a modern seven-story building with a singular geometric architecture overhanging the Mediterranean Sea. As for Monte Carlo's old train station, the last evidence is the section of a wall hidden in the hotel's offices.
In August 1975, Her Highness Princess Grace inaugurated the opening of this new hotel called at the time the Loews Monte Carlo. The completion of this convention resort gave a new dimension to tourism in Monaco offering the possibility to welcome substantial travel business.
The hotel has contributed to the development of the Principality of Monaco in the 20th century. Furthermore, this hotel complex continues to promote the expansion of high profile business tourism in collaboration with the Grimaldi Forum.
A new century, a new challenge.
